ASSISTANT PROFESSOR
THEORETICAL COSMOLOGY AND ASTROPARTICLE PHYSICS
DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS
KANSAS STATE UNIVERSITY

The Department of Physics at Kansas State University (K-State) seeks applicants for a tenure-track assistant professor position, to start in Fall 2014, in the general area of cosmology and astroparticle physics.  The candidate must present credentials that will justify appointment at this level, including a Ph.D. or equivalent, in physics, astronomy, or a related discipline. 
Preference will be given to a theorist who works as part of a large observational collaboration, taking part in instrument and observational strategy design and data analysis as well as developing theoretical models relevant to the observation program.  We are also interested in candidates who can symbiotically extend the current K-State research effort in theoretical cosmology.  Opportunities exist for close collaboration with members of the experimental High Energy Physics group, particularly in data analysis and parameter inference and large scale data processing and computation. The successful candidate should also demonstrate a strong commitment to teaching and mentoring of students and to serving a diverse population.
Applications should be sent to Theoretical Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics Search Committee, 116 Cardwell Hall, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS 66506-2601 or to cosmosearch@phys.ksu.edu. In addition to curriculum vitae, applications should include statements of research and teaching interests. Applicants should arrange to have three letters of reference sent. Screening of applicants will begin on February 10, 2014, and continue until the position is filled. Background checks are required. Kansas State University is an affirmative action equal opportunity employer and actively seeks diversity among its employees.
